I'm sure its a combination of the Khan fight being outside contract AND the million dollar guarantee HBO promised him. It would be stupid to take this fight for numerous reasons; he'll get basically the same money to fight an easier fight in his next date, he'll got -some- sort of promotion if he's with TR, and he'll be in the Pacquiao sweepstakes for Manny's opponent in spring.
He really can't lose if he just cools his heels and waits for his contract to expire. Its not like he has any fans anyway.
